I was born and raised in south-eastern Ohio, in a very small farming community.  My husband and I have been married for 17 years, and have been together for 26 years. We met in high school and have been inseparable ever since. We have two amazing children, ages 11 and 10.  I earned my degree in Biological sciences at the University of Cincinnati and attended dental school at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. We moved out to Phoenix immediately upon graduating dental school in 2006. We then found Yuma, AZ and fell in love with it. We never imagined we would get the opportunity to work and raise our children in such a great area!  As much as we love the Yuma community and endless supply of sunshine, we really missed our family and wanted our children to know and grow up with their family around.  The time came for me to make a transition in my practice and my life.  My family and I returned to our home state to reconnect with our family and take care of our aging parents.


Let me say that I am absolutely honored Dr. Cooper has chosen me to be the one to continue your care.  I hope to get to know all of you, while continuing to provide you with the quality dentistry and excellent patient care you have come to expect.

Looking forward to meeting you,
Dr. Tanya K Sackrider, DDS
